How to Pack Properly

When packing up your things ready to be moved into your storage Chester, you should make sure you disassemble the big pieces, keeping the screws and other important parts safe in a labelled bag or container. It is never a good idea to place things loose and on their own when packing, as they can get damaged or lost during the journey or transfer to the storage unit. Box everything to combat this common problem.

You should clear out all fridges, ovens, cupboards, wardrobes and any other big storage units, taping their doors closed for the journey. By doing this, you are avoiding problems with damages related to moving these appliances about. For example, fridge doors can get damaged, resulting in a big problem when moving back in – something that can be extremely stressful!

You can use different boxes for different items, as some items will require a stronger structure to help protect them, where as other items; for example clothes, only require lighter, cardboard boxes, to enable easy and quick transportation.

Labelling your boxes is an extremely useful way to keep track of where your belongings are, is categorising your belongings and putting them in boxes together is a great idea.

You should never over fill or under fill your boxes as they can be too heavy or too light to transfer, which can also waste space. The use of proper, strong boxes is important as they won’t collapse easily when filled, meaning your items will remain safe and protected. Overfilling boxes is not advisable, as it can make them far too heavy to lift and carry, as well as making them liable for damage and problems. You should label all boxes according to what type of items are in them, making it a lot easier to unpack when you finally get to the required destination. There is nothing worse than getting to the desired destination and not being able to find an important item that you require.

Delicate items should be packed individually, with protection used around them, for example; bubble wrap. This is common knowledge and should be put into action to avoid breakages and damages to important items. You should make sure you have the required protective material before the moving day arrives, meaning you are not scrambling around looking for something that can protect your delicate items.

When unpacking boxes into the container, you should place the ones at the back which you want to unload into your house or property first, the ones at the back of the container will generally be the things you need first and the most upon arrival. By using boxes effectively and thinking logically, you will use boxes the best way possible.

How do you know self storage will keep your property safe?

There are several security systems that storage facilities may use to protect your property. The ones with the most security in place are the most reliable.

CCTV in operation is a good sign and should be utilised by any reputable self storage facility. Electric gate systems mean no one can just walk into the container areas. Security staff help protect the containers by making sure no on enters unseen and no suspicious behaviour occurs.

The containers themselves must be secure too. Insurance rated container locks on each and every container and industry standard locks will make it a challenge to break into your personal container. Good security on the containers and in the wider storage area will keep your property secure and safe while you need complete access to your property 24/7 with your own personal key.

Each container should not only protect your property from intruders, but also from the elements. Double sealed containers make them air tight and vents allow moisture and air out but not in, therefore there is no damage to your property.

Packing & Storing: How to Do It Right

You might use self storage Chester if you are going on a long holiday, moving home, if you are a business owner with an influx of stock, refurbishing or downsizing your home.

If you do use storage Chester these are our tips for proper packing.

The safety and security of your property is of paramount importance. There are things you can do or neglect to do that could cause damage to your property!

• First of all always assess the size of space you will need to store your belongings. People often misjudge exactly how much space they will require to store their property so think about this very carefully. If you use self storage Chester or any storage facility you need to be certain which size container you will need.

• Make a comprehensive list of all your belongings that are going into storage. That way you can keep track of them and they are far less likely to be lost. This is especially useful for packing multiple smaller items or storing lots of different sized items.

• Take into consideration what kind of protection your property will need e.g. indoor storage versus shed storage. Are you concerned about environmental damage to your belongings?

• Whether you are packing for storage Chester or packing for travel, always pack well in advance. Leaving packing, or any task for that matter, to the last minute always ends in disaster or forgetting something important.

• If you are packing for storage then be sure to buy plenty of packing materials. If you do not pack your property properly then it is likely to be damaged. Some items are better wrapped up. An important and very useful packing supply are labels. If you label all your belongings so you know what is in each you will thank yourself later. Labelling makes you pack in the right order so no heavy items on top of delicate ones and it helps you remember how many items you have.

Moving blankets are a great idea. Professional movers often use them and we highly recommend them, particularly if you are moving furniture. If you are storing large, heavy furniture and other items then a heavy, thick blanket will be more effective at protecting them from damage.

Boxes, boxes, boxes. Buy plenty of boxes. Packing your items into boxes keeps them safe but does less to cause moisture damage than plastic wrap. Boxes help you keep track of your belongings if you label them, helps you judge how much space they will require and you can moisture absorbers in them.

• Get some bubble wrap for breakable items and be extra careful if you are packing plates and glasses.

• Obviously if you store large, electrical household equipment like a fridge do remember to defrost and drain first.

Self Storage Chester – What Not To Store

An essential aspect to consider when opting for self storage Chester is the suitability of what can be kept there. Some of the following tips may appear a little obvious but you’d be surprised what some people have mistakenly stored in the past!

Food

No matter how many preservatives are present in your items, the lack of steady airflow to your storage box can lead to the gradual deterioration of your food. The spoilage of your food is purely a scientific one with its decomposition coming after a build-up of bacteria and fungi which break down the cells and cause it to rot. No matter how valued something like a wedding cake is, it’s not a good idea to keep it locked up while you’re away!

Animals

This does seem just like common sense but there have been circumstances where it’s just not occurred to people that a self-storage crate is not a place for living things, particularly those that need nurturing and care. Pets can sometimes be left alone in boxes with animals like goldfishes being mistakenly left behind plenty of times in the past. As well as not being able to get any food, the relatively compacted area of the unit is not beneficial to their health.

Combustible and Hazardous Goods

Anything volatile is simply a no-goer in terms of storage as it can not only affect your unit, but those around it and the business itself should the worst happen. Items such as fireworks or anything such as gas or oil are a major hazard to be stored as the smallest trigger can make these products cause huge problems. Although it seems fairly unlikely for anyone to do so, the storage of weapons and firearms is also strictly prohibited.

Now that some of the basic tips are out of the way, you can invest in a self-storage unit safe in the knowledge that you know what and what’s not suitable to leave kept.
